Daily technical analysis candlestick chart for Torchmark Corp. (TMK) as at Apr 16, 2018

Monday's trading range was $0.86 (1.01%), that's below last trading month's daily average range of $1.57. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly below average.

Prices are trading close to a key support level at 84.50.

Although the share is experiencing a short-term up trend, this might just be a correction, as both the medium and long term trends are still in negative territory. The stock managed to break above the 50-day moving average at 84.59 today for the first time since September 19, 2017.

Further buying could move prices higher should the market test March's close-by high at 87.57.
